Default Trying to keep things dry

Hi guys/girls

I'm just back from a small vacation, and one of the things I did was trying to keep my camera and lens dry.

I had a plastic bag around the lens/camera and that worked out, only the O-ME53 1.2x (eyepiece) wasn't waterproof, and I had some problem later to get the water out of it.

PENTAX K-5 + Sigma 10-20mm


10mm f6.7


19mm f6.7


19mm f6.7


10mm f6.7

Oh yes, it's the Niagara Falls and now I'm one of those people weird enough to go in a small boath wearing a plastic raincoat to see if its real water and if you can get wet.

Any C&C always welcome, but I'm sure I'm not going to repeat this in the near future.

Cheers

Ronny

Very nice pictures. Brings back memories of my trip there about 25 yrs. ago. Still using film then.

Nice shots and thanks for the memories, I guess it was 20 odd years ago for my visit.

Great captures of the power and the rich color. Last image is my favorite.

10mm is really wide. I like number three. The blurred figures capture the energy of the place. Never been there, but now it's on my list.

Very cool! Glad you enjoyed your trip, and I love the very wet shots. Can see why you needed the plastic bag. The rain coats are indicative of how much wind there must have been, they are billowing. With all the heat we've been having, I sure wouldn't mind visiting somewhere like this - that water spray would help with the over-heating.

Can't wait to see more of your trip, where all did you go?

How embarrassing -- I live only about a day's drive from Niagara Falls, but I have never been there. And you visited all the way from Europe! I like all of these shots, but the third one is my favorite. I also am looking forward to seeing more photos of your trip.
